{DIY} From Frumpy Beasts to Golden Beauties


 Golden beasts have become quite a staple in modern decor lately and I JUST LOVE IT! I really feel like they make your home feel as though it's not taking itself too seriously. I have been wanting some dinosaurs to add to my decor, but have had a hard time finding some cheap-o, plastic ones in Germany ... What I did find were these dark and frumpy creatures below...
I took these drab looking animals and blinged them up in minutes with some handy-dandy Rub'n Buff. This stuff is awesome you guys... You can redo frames, furniture, anything and it takes very little of the stuff to get the job done. It can be found at most craft stores and they have a ton of finish options.

After the beasts dramatic makeover, you can find these guys moving around our home getting into things. They bring a smile to my face...
 Here is Mr. hippo keeping toasty on our mantle and you can find Ellie the elephant blowing out sweet messages...
(Actually, I have to give my husband credit for getting that card, when he ordered some other art for me from Lindsay Letters). Read about it here!

In the evenings, they point to what kind of cocktail I should make...

 And sometimes you can even find them trying on some jewelry. They have gotten kind of cocky now that they are all shimmering and lovely.

I love my new little friends, they are quite unexpected and I like that about them. What have you used Rub'n Buff on? Have you given something a make-over recently?? To see other Rub'n Buff transformations, click here
Peace out yo!

  1. You always have such lovely, fun posts with beautiful pictures. I really should try some of the diy home projects you showcase. I've tried (successfully) making the rosemary olive oil - great to dip ciabatta bread in - and chocolate syrup almond joy flavor - heavenly on ben & jerry's french vanilla.
